May says talks to start as planned

  • Her statement came despite last week’s unexpected election result which left May without a majority in the House of Commons

At her meeting with new French president Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Tuesday British prime minister Theresa May said that the UK would start Brexit negotiations with the EU next week as planned. Her statement came despite last week’s unexpected election result which left May without a majority in the House of Commons. Macron said that the “door was still open” for the UK to reverse its decision and remain in the EU if it wanted.
